Absolutely fabulous... The mosaics in Pella are incredibly well preserved and are a sight to behold... The Vergina tombs are amazing, breathtaking. If you like history and archeology this is the place to be. It's not hard to catapult yourself 3000 years back in time and imagine what it was like back then. Our bus driver and "guide", a very jovial guy, who knew what he was talking about, was not allowed/could not guide us on the Pella site and also in Vergina because he does not have a license for this. Very unfortunate because he has a very large historical and archaeological knowledge. So we had to see the two sites without a guide...
A total must do to in Thessaloniki!!! Bring a towel if you dont want to rent one and a cellphone waterproof case so you can take photos by the waterfall. The tour guide was very informative and the driver excellent as we rode in rainy weather. The first bath is nice and gets a lot of traffic but make sure to head inside to the larger bath further down. It has access to the larger waterfall and it creates a separate mini thermal pool. So very soothing and a must to relax and enjoy. The walk through the second city was nice and there is access to some inside caves make sure to check out as well
We had an unforgettable day sailing to Shipwreck Bay! The captain is a very friendly, accommodating and funny man who makes you feel safe and made us a super delicious lunch. From the boat we were able to swim to the beach, snorkel and explore the shipwreck. Afterwards there was still time to sunbathe and swing from the boat with the "liana" - a perfect trip that is absolutely recommended.
The tour was very nice and interesting. Easy walk in the streets of Thessaloniki, seeing the beautiful market. Our guide, Elena was super nice and helpful. One note, the food tasting wasn't as we expected to be, in the market, but it was in a cafe of the hotel. Would recommend.
The experience was great for me personally. Our tour guide Yannis deserves special mention. He added that extra spice to the trip and made us feel welcomed. I strongly suggest taking this trip, you will not regret it. And thank you Yannis once again :)
